Johnson to ask EU to rule out further delay - report

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will ask European Union leaders to refuse to grant the United Kingdom another delay so that it may leave on October 31, the Times reported on Tuesday citing sources familiar with the matter.

According to the sources, ministers are understood to have warned Johnson that he would have to seek an extension unless he gets a new deal, with one stating that it was "deal or delay." The newspaper also reported that senior judges in the UK were readying plans for an emergency legal challenge if Johnson fai to seek a delay to the deadline at the end of October.

The reports come after sources previously said that Johnson would reveal his final Brexit plan during the course of the day. They stated that it was is expected to encompass a pan-Ireland "economic zone" that would allow agricultural and food products to move between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland without any checks at the border.
